    Please send one in working condition to me. It would be even better if it processed 120 film too.

    No, but I'd love one of these for all the nice things to "borrow" for DIY projects

    Agreed, some nice parts to be had there (the green pumps, for example). Indeed unless you are running them full-tilt, they are going to be near useless for most home hobbyist types. They need throughput, and lots of it, not to mention the cleaning effort required to maintain them well. If they did 120 it might be more viable but for 35mm only, seems like a non-starter. Guy will be lucky to give them away.
